Overview
The R Street Institute is an innovative, pragmatic think-tank based in Washington that conducts research into ways to achieve "limited, effective government." While R Street aims to limit the size and scope of governmental activity, it also thinks it important that government accomplish its core functions in an efficient, effective manner. Since Congress is a key governing institution, its manifest dysfunction is a key issue of concern. This grant funds R Street’s Governance Project, which began in 2014 and explores the mechanisms and processes that Congress uses to carry out its oversight, regulatory, budget, and appropriations functions, as well as its role vis-à-vis the public and the other two branches in the U.S. constitutional system.

Grants to this Grantee
for support of a free-market research project for birth control access and information  
R Street Institute is a nonpartisan organization that engages in policy research and outreach to promote free markets and limited, effective government. This grant will support R Street to continue advancing a right-of-center case for deregulating birth control by allowing pharmacists to prescribe it directly to patients. R Street is providing intellectual and policy guidance to cultivate broader conservative support for birth control access, and is playing a key role in growing a left-right coalition around the topic. This grant is strongly aligned with our goals of reducing unnecessary barriers to reproductive health care and supporting a diverse advocacy ecosystem. (Strategy: U.S. Reproductive Health and Rights.)
for general operating support  
The R Street Institute is an innovative, pragmatic think tank whose mission is to engage in policy research and outreach to promote limited, effective government. In this light, the U.S. Congress’ suboptimal functioning is a major concern. This grant funds R Street’s Governance Project, which studies how Congress operates and examines nonpartisan opportunities for intra-institutional reforms. These include Congress’ oversight, regulatory, budget, and appropriations functions, as well as its human capital and other resources for executing its constitutional duties and meeting the public’s demands in the 21st century. (Strategy: Strengthening Congress)
